Setpoint Systems is growing and has hired several new employees.
This quarter we have held two new employee training classes. The first class consisted of two service account managers and one construction account manager. They focused on estimating and sales.
Our second class had a variety of different positions: two techs, one engineer/estimator, one inside part salesperson, and an engineering aide. After the main training was held, they worked with their individual groups to receive specialized training.
All of these employees completed five weeks of extensive technical training, product training, company culture review, plus learned our processes, procedures, and standards. In addition to classroom training, readings, and homework exercises, they earned a “Masters” level on Delta Controls “George University”.
Cody graduated from SCIT in Anaheim, California, and earned an associates degree in electrical engineering. After earning his degree, he moved back to Minnesota and worked as an electrician at various Minneapolis construction sites for a year.
Later he moved to Texas and worked various jobs while he figured out life. He is still working on the meaning of life and will share it as soon as he does.
Cody has been picky about his jobs and was excited when he saw Setpoint’s ads. He researched our company and thought it would be a good field to be in because of controls. He enjoys the atmosphere and culture of our company. It’s everything he hoped for, and he is looking forward to completing training. Cody will be working with Ryan in our Minnesota office.
He has been married to Sidney for two years, and they have a 15-month old son named Owen. Owen is his passion. Owen walks, talks, and runs… Cody watches a lot of Owen TV when he gets home.
James, Applications Engineer/Estimator
James earned his bachelors of science in mechanical engineering and graduated from the University of Kentucky in 2016. After graduation, he worked full-time for the company he was interning with to be a quality/manufacturing engineer.
While James appreciated the job, he didn’t feel like he was able to move forward or to think critically. He was looking for a challenge and an opportunity to gain experience. His plans after college were to find a full-time engineering job, preferably in Colorado.
After he initially spoke with Sheri about the culture and what he would be doing at Setpoint, he was intrigued. During his interview with Sheri and Jon, they made him think critically about what he would be doing at Setpoint. He liked the way Setpoint challenges and empowers their people. He decided it was the place for him.
As part of the offer, Setpoint flew James to Colorado and had him stay in the company condo while he did his five weeks of new employee training. This made him appreciate how the company invests in their employees. After the training program is complete, he will be relocating to the Denver area.
James loves snowboarding, hiking, camping, and biking. He has a lot of friends in Colorado that he met while he was in the University of Kentucky ski club. Since there is no shortage of things to do in Colorado, he is looking forward to exploring.
Tammy loves doing controls and is excited to be joining Setpoint Systems. She has been in HVAC for over 25 years. For the past ten years, she worked as an HVAC Service Tech until she was introduced to building controls. She loved it and said she discovered her passion.
Tammy started taking over the building controls and was subcontracted out to other HVAC contractors through her last employer. It was quite the experience, and she gained extensive knowledge about many different systems and their controls.
She has a lot of hands-on experience and believes in researching problems to achieve results. Tammy believes in strong customer service and often goes above and beyond to satisfy customer needs.
She has been married thirty years and has six adult children plus three grandsons. She enjoys spending time with her family going camping, fishing, hiking, and many other outdoor activities.
Her goals have been the same for quite some time—to have a dream job as a building automation programmer and to be able to share knowledge with her fellow workers. She is currently in college for her bachelors in information technology. She believes she will be a more valuable employee by combining her IT knowledge with her controls experience.
Tammy is really excited about the opportunity of working on Delta Controls systems at Setpoint.
Stacy, Inside Part Sales
Stacy comes from a varied background but has been interested in the building automation services for many years. For the past six years, he was running a successful gunsmithing business but was searching for more stability at a company he could feel proud to work for. Setpoint fits the bill.
From the time he could walk, he was on jobsites with his father’s construction company, doing everything from hammering a nail to building a 6,000-SF building from the ground up. This experience taught him hard work, tenacity, as well as the ins and outs of the trade.
From there, he went on to a golf scholarship at Drexel University and focused his attention on computer information systems. He worked in the IT industry for over a decade and plans to blend this valuable knowledge and skills to build the Parts Department at Setpoint.
Stacy lives in Conifer with his wife and young daughter. He enjoys golfing, shooting sports, hunting, and anything in the mountains.
Kyle, Engineering Aide
Kyle earned an associates degree in HVAC in upstate New York. He had been working in the Denver area for two years in the property maintenance field and was focusing on residential HVAC systems for multifamily housing.
Kyle is now looking forward to this new challenge and views it as an excellent opportunity to adjust his career path. He is interested in energy management, working with controls, and learning more about the Internet of Things (IoT).
He has been married for seven years to Natalie, and they have a furry kid named Jack. They enjoy hiking, camping, snowboarding, and exploring what Colorado has to offer.
He believes Setpoint is a place where he can make more of a difference. It is a more important field and has a bigger impact on energy savings. Controls will play a critical role in energy management with our growing population and the effects of increased energy demands and the depletion of natural resources.
